CNN’s Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo literally excused Biden today for the freaking fiasco he created out of Afghanistan, blaming Trump instead by saying Biden wa dealt a bad hand by Trump:
Trump handed the keys to a bunch of barbarians. Biden extended months from original date. Biden didn’t play cards well enough but he was given a bad hand from trump and none of these angry patriots on the right were as bothered then as they are now. Wonder why… https://t.co/TdxGB3dEsm

Does this guy do any fact-checking on his own? We covered this last week, pointing out how the Associated Press, a left-wing outlet, revealed that Biden was NOT dealt a bad hand by Trump after all, that the agreement with the Taliban was conditions based and those conditions had not been met:
U.S. officials made clear at the time that the agreement was conditions-based and the failure of intra-Afghan peace talks to reach a negotiated settlement would have nullified the requirement to withdraw.
One day before the Doha deal, a top aide to chief U.S. negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad said the agreement was not irreversible, and “there is no obligation for the United States to withdraw troops if the Afghan parties are unable to reach agreement or if the Taliban show bad faith” during negotiations.
Those negotiations were intended to begin within a month of the deal being signed but were delayed amid disputes between the Taliban and the Afghan government over prisoner releases. Amid fits and starts, the negotiations had not produced any outcome by the time Biden announced his withdrawal decision in April. Nor have they done so since.
There was never a peace agreement between the Taliban and the Afghan government and thus the withdrawal was not supposed to happen. But Biden went through with it anyway because he was the one who wanted to pull out. As he plainly said, he didn’t want to pass Afghanistan on to another president with US troops there. So he withdrew and blew it all to hell. This disaster is completely on him.
Cuomo knows this, but he is really nothing but political hack pretending to be news. As you can imagine, he was demolished on Twitter over this ridiculous position:
Bullshit, hack. Nowhere did Trump make a deal that said “pull out the military in the middle of the night, strand Americans, leave billions of dollars in weaponry, and give them helicopters to hang our Afghan translators from.” My God, you people are stupid. @ChrisCuomo https://t.co/wqp3LuAwhU

There have actually been a number of CNN reporters doing an amazing job covering this crisis. It’s shame they have to work with this guy. https://t.co/URhf8GTr7A

None of this is true. How does Chris Cuomo have a job in “news”? https://t.co/zIuqi67BKG

You should probably have Biden on and hold up a giant Q-tip https://t.co/NJyVsdhl6x

Joe Biden is the only president in history not responsible for anything bad and solely responsible for everything good. https://t.co/ElWpIeT18o
